2010:365:75 W is for Wine, Wisdom ....

We're getting near to the end of the alphabet and ignoring watches, words and waffles I opted for a pretty glass of wine!  A wee turtle got in in the act - his red nose reflected the ruby sparkle very nicely.
As you'd expect there were a number of pictures taken.  Light behind the glass brings out the deep red.
Looking down on the top provided another perspective.....and some interesting reflections.
It reminded me of half a case of bottles that have been relegated to the back of the cellar.  It was an impulse buy - judging the wine (literally) by the label!  I bought it when living in a rectory which was on top of a hill, a hill fort in ancient times.  
Last time I tried it the only good thing was the name!  Perhaps with the passage of time, and change of rectory, it might have developed a warm maturity?  If not... there's a lot of cooking wine here!
It's a pity... but the moral of the story is clear...

Give us deeper reverence for the truth,
and such wisdom in the use of knowledge
that your kingdom may be advanced
and your name glorified;
through Jesus Christ our Lord.  Amen.
